Best upgrade...?

  1. Hey guys...
    I got into f.e.a.r a multiplayer game... and got addicted to it... now the thing is my processor is 2.8 ghz so i lag a lot.. and cant perform...:( . and my pc is a crappy DELL E510....( i tried to fix the lag seeked help but didnt work )
    I want to get a AMD processor dual core along with a motherboard but on the other hand i dont want to waste money on buying new ram hard drives and other hardware....
    So can you all suggest me which motherboard and processor to buy.... a combo would be more helpfull since it will save my money....
    I'm looking for a decent AMD dual core 4400 - 4600 either would do...

    And here are my current pc specs...
    Ultra X finity 550 Watt psu
    1.5 gig 533 MHZ ram
    One ATI Raedon X1950 graphic card pci ( not AGP)
    one dvd rom....
    80 GB serial ATA drive
    And a dell E510 case....
    The detailed specs of my motherboard are right here if you need more information http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5150/en/sm/specs1.htm#wp1052310

    I dont have much knowledge about computers....so have been kicked around for a while.... wasting money on useless hardware......

    Can you all suggest me a mobo and a processor ( a combo would be preferred) which would replace my mobo and processor... and i'd be able to keep my other stuff like dvd rom hard drive and ram.....( will it fit my Dell E510 case? )
    and yes why im doing this is to play f.e.a.r and would want a processor and mobo which will not lag me and perform like the best in its range... i was looking at Tigerdirect and came across.. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?E...o=31273
    would this work.. the price seemss pretty decent too..( oh sorry guys this doesnt support 533 MHZ memory i think):(

    Thankyou.
